The Alabama "Sharia Law Amendment" did not make the November 2012 ballot in the state of Alabama as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have prohibited courts in the state from using the Islamic Sharia Law when making judicial decisions. The measure was introduced in 2011 state legislative session by State Senator Gerald Allen. The measure was similar to Oklahoma's State Question 755, which was voted on during the 2010 general election. The formal title of the Alabama proposal was Senate Bill 62.
Path to the ballot
Article XVIII of the Alabama Constitution says that it takes a three-fifths (60%) vote of the Alabama State Legislature to qualify a constitutional amendment for the ballot.
